A variety of Murder, She Wrote games have been released since 1985 ranging from an original board game, to mystery puzzle games.

HistoryEdit

Shortyl after the premiere of Murder, She Wrote a series of tie in games were produced. In 1984 American Publishing Company and Paul Lamond Games Ltd released four mystery puzzle games. In these games the player must read the storyline provided and piece together a puzzle, from the clues provided, to solve the case.

Following these games Warren Industries, in partnership with Paul Lamond Games Ltd, a Murder, She Wrote board game, similar in concept to Cluedo. The player assigned as the detective must discover the murderer before all the witnesses are dead, if he/she manages this they win the game, however if they fail the murderer wins the game.

Both the original board game and the mystery puzzles are now very rare collectors items and can retail for a considerable amount of money.

Upcoming ReleasesEdit

At E3 2009 (June 2 - 4 2009) Legacy Interactive announced that a Murder, She Wrote game for the PC was in active development. The game is to be a hidden object game, in which evidence is scattered around the crime scene, once enough evidence is collected the case can be solved. The game proved to be a commercial success, leading to the development of a sequel. "Murder, She Wrote 2" is planned for a Fall 2012 release.
